KASON LAYNE
The Friday Night concert and fun will starts with REAL radio with Matt Baldridge LIVE onstage beginning at 6pm!  Join the fun as Matt gets everyone ready for the concert with music and giveaways!! 

KASON LAYNE will take the stage at 7pm!  Founded in 2007, Kason Layne is one of those bands that sounds like a him rather than a them. Their debut single, "Miss You Bad" charted simply on the strength of the band's hard work, visiting radio stations and playing every dive bar and college campus that would open their doors for them. Opening stints for artists including Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Brantley Gilbert and Chris Young didn't hurt the single's success any either. Their debut album, Living It Up, received distribution through out the south and landed spots on both the Billboard Country Albums chart and the Music Row Album chart.  With a sound that blends all of their influences, the best of Southern Rock, Modern Country and classic honky-tonk, giving them a sound comparable to many in the "outlaw" movement of the  70's. The group is preparing to release their second album in July and will be touring your area soon. 

  • Hand picked to be the first band to play at Blake Shelton's Ole Red in Nashville, TN by staff and members of The Grand Ole Opry and Ryman Entertainment.
  • Nominated for Georgia Country Band of The Year.
  • Played on over 300 radio stations worldwide.
  • Debut album, "Livin' It Up" was picked up by Wal*Mart and is available worldwide and in stores across the South.
  • Debut single "Miss You Bad" charted nationally on Billboard and Music Row charts.
  • Has played in 100s of cities across the U.S.
  • Played on NBC's Late Night with Joey Reynolds show.
